Trump Falsely Claims NBC ‘Got Caught’ Faking Interview Where He Admitted To Obstruction Of Justice




More than a year after President Trump admitted to NBC News anchor Lester Holt that he fired FBI Director James Comey with the Russia investigation on his mind, the president issued an unhinged tweet accusing Holt of “fudging” their interview.

“What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks – with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse,” the Trump tweeted.

“When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!” he added.

Trump’s evidence-free claim was quickly debunked with a quick visit to NBC’s YouTube channel which features the full 13-minute unedited interview.




“In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won,’” Trump told Holt in the May 11, 2017 interview, two days after he fired Comey.

Trump’s explanation for the firing has raised questions over the possibility that Trump obstructed justice in the Russia investigation, a possibility Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating.

Twitter users struggled to make sense of Trump’s latest round of unhinged Twitter attacks:
